BROWNPAPERBAG is THE professional videographer with 30 years of experience both on and off the stage.
I started what became BrownPaperBag back in 1975, when I was working for an appliance store in NY. We received some of the very first Sony Betamax video recorders for sale and I was so excited by it I ended up buying one! I was a young actor and I had the idea that I could record by performances and learn from what I saw (having a big ego helped.) It wasn't long before watching the video of the show was a big part of every cast party. A few people asked if they could get a copy. Not many people had VCRs; back then just a blank tape was $25.00, roughly $110.00 in today's money! But those first few customers lead to today's full service videography and photography company.
By the way, I still have those tapes from 1975!
